Beat the Empty Shelves: Make Your Own Hand Sanitizer

by | Mar 5, 2020 | Emergency Preparedness, Headline News | 9 comments

Hand sanitizers, emergency food kits, and face masks have been selling out quickly as the coronavirus’ rapid spread continues to ravage the globe.  But there is one way to beat the empty shelves, and that’s to make your own hand sanitizer.

The great thing about making your own is that you control the ingredients and the alcohol content.  But if you don’t want to make your own, you can still find hand sanitzer online, and in bulk. It seems to be some stores that are experiencing shortages.

Here’s what you’ll need to make your own hand sanitizer:


*The CDC recommends using hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol content in order to make it effective at killing most viruses and bacteria. This recipe will make a sanitizer that slightly exceeds that alcohol content at 60.66%, so follow the proportions exactly. If you want a sanitizer with a higher alcohol percentage, decrease the amount of aloe vera to 1/4 cup.

In a mixing bowl, stir Isopropyl alcohol and aloe vera gel together until well blended. Add 8-10 drops of scented essential oil (optional). Stir to incorporate. Pour the homemade hand sanitizer into an empty container and seal. Write “hand sanitizer” on a piece of masking tape and affix it to the bottle.

That’s it! It’s that easy! Consider doubling or even tripling this recipe if you enjoy the outcome, or play around with the quantities yourself. Maybe a concentration of less than 60% alcohol is right for you, especially if you have dry skin and aren’t in an area where the virus is widespread.

This is still not a substitute for a good hand washing routine either.  Remember to keep your hands clean and make sure you wash before you touch your eyes, face, nose, or mouth.  This is an effective measure against the coronavirus.

Stay healthy!

        I don’t mean any disrespect to you, personally.

        Just wanted to say that several big names, in the conspiracy theorist community, are making excuses for medical tyranny, right now, as is detailed in the Intellihub article, above.

        These radio personalities have been near-silent on the issue of rfid implants, paired with universal vaccination and replacing dirty cash.

        Trump said, there would be an entry / exit visa, by land, air and sea. They discussed rfid, after the late Aaron Russo, but not after Trump, probably believing that the wall, happy camps, and other security infrastructure was intended against illegals.

        I think, if the ex-con, homeless, alien, and anchor baby comply with the pathways to citizenship, given to them, they will go much further in this life than the refuseniks.

      so 70% is more effective than 91% or higher?

      ..70% IPA solutions penetrate the cell wall more completely which permeates the entire cell, coagulates all proteins, and therefore the microorganism dies. water content slows evaporation, therefore increasing surface contact time and enhancing effectiveness. Isopropyl alcohol concentrations over 91% coagulate proteins instantly. Consequently, a protective layer is created which protects other proteins from further coagulation.

      Probably, within the first week of local news calling this virus a fact of life, we return to making our own soap.

      When I imagine that social pyramid, it means, to me, that we are beyond carrying capacity, if everyone wants their own goods and services, at the same time.
